RA’S AL GHUL

Independently wealthy. Utilizes his vast fortune to finance and further his goals. Incredibly intelligent. A brilliant strategist. Master martial artist. Allied with a host of expert warriors under his command.

He is Ra’s al Ghul, the Demon’s Head, leader of the League of Assassins and the only person in the world capable of going toe-to-toe with the Bat on every level.

Ra’s al Ghul first became aware of Batman after the Dark Knight became entangled with his daughter, Talia. As another man of power who was fully committed to his cause, Ra’s al Ghul saw Batman as a worthy heir to his position as leader of the League of Assassins, a shadowy group that seeks to cleanse the world of corruption and achieve perfect environmental balance. However, the Dark Knight refused, seeing Ra’s al Ghul’s methods—such as killing half of humanity through biological warfare—too ruthless and brutal.

Utilizing the regenerative powers of the Lazarus Pit, Ra’s al Ghul can heal himself from any injury and has often been resurrected from death itself. His exact age is unknown, but he has been around for hundreds of years, giving him an immeasurable amount of knowledge and resources. He is easily one of the world’s greatest threats and can be seen as the embodiment of Batman’s desire to be more than a man, to be a symbol. For long after Bruce Wayne is gone, Ra’s al Ghul shall live on.

Check out Alexander Skarsgård is in this week’s @Variety!

The Variety issue dated September 20, 2017 has 4 separate photos of Alex for pre-Emmy (Variety Women in Film Pre-Emmy Celebration) and post Emmy parties (HBO’s and Governors Ball) after his big win Sunday night for OUTSTANDING SUPPORTING ACTOR IN A LIMITED SERIES/TV MOVIE for BIG LITTLE LIES.

He even got a grade of “A-” on the WWD Report Card thanks to the styling of Jeanne Yang for his Ermenegildo Zegna Couture tuxedo, Cartier lapel pin and Christian Louboutin shoes. He was groomed by Kim Verbeck.

They said, ‘He pulls off the evening wear look effortlessly. Three-piece tuxedos are hard to wear but his slender 6-foot-4 physique makes the look work. And the suit’s fitted silhouette only helps. The hint of white pocket square, the jeweled lapel and gold watch add the right luxe touch.’

It also says that ‘Alexander Skarsgård reunited with TRUE BLOOD castmates Rutina Wesley and Adina Porter, and made the rounds through the crowd with Jack McBrayer, whom he jokingly called his “husband” as he toted his statuette.’

There are also HBO and CAA congratulatory ads that lists all of their Emmy winners (Alex), but I will be posting them in a different post. (see THR post)
